Badly and preferably in a dimly lit environment? How else are we meant to do it given the burden of oppression all these years? Historically, Ireland has been a nation of relative sexual repression where sex existed for procreation, not recreation and where sexual encounters before marriage were considered a cardinal sin. This new 6-part series takes a frank look at how the Irish have experienced and dealt with social change since the 1950's through the theme of sexuality. Not only do Irish people talk candidly about their sex lives, it also proves how much Irish society has evolved over the past 5 decades (if straddling people in public is considered so). Programme one is entitled 'What's the big deal about virginity?'
